Systems for Patient Lifts

ACTUATOR Systems for patient lifts


LINAK offers different types of systems for different types of needs. Whether you prefer a basic or an advanced system for your patient lift, we have the right one for you.

A typical patient lift system is built around 3 to 5 main products:
  • the lifting actuator performing the actual movement of the patient
  • a leg spread actuator ensuring stability of the patient lifts
  • sometimes a third actuator is mounted to control the sling
  • the control box with battery controlling the movement
  • the control where you activate the required move.
The specification of each of these products depends on your individual needs and design ideas.

A typical patient lift would be built up around one of each category products. No matter which you choose you will get a top class system that improves the quality of life for the user by improving safety and providing a reliable, smooth and quiet movement for the patients.

MEDLINE & CARELINE patient lift Control Boxes

The CBJ-Care is an intelligent solution enabling service data to be stored in the control box to guarantee that the patient lifts are up and running at all times. Furthermore, the CBJ-Care can help remember service visits, provide extended information about the battery stage and add many other advantages. The CBJ1 enables two speed operation and soft start and soft stop of the lifting actuator to make certain a comfortable lift for the patients. If you need a basic control box with battery alarm, a CBJ2 is a good and reliable choice. Our elegant CBJ-Home adds design to the lift, but also features like easy and reliable adjustment of maximum weight.

All control boxes come with internal or external charger also enabling a wall charger option. Various different accessories and options are available depending on your needs.

MEDLINE & CARELINE patient lift Actuators

Lifting actuators for different load capacities are available. The LA31 is available when handling high load, the LA34 for handling an even higher load and the LA44 for the heaviest loads. All actuators are strong choices for lifting the patients and developed for the purpose. 
For leg spread or sling control actuators we recommend our small and compact LA23, or the extremely silent LA31, our compact LA28 or our small LA12 depending on design wishes and patient lift construction. 


Whether you look for a simple up-down control or an advanced control showing the battery status, service need or overload indicator you will find it in the MEDLINE & CARELINE product portfolio. Our newest hand controls are the HB70 and the HB80. The HB80 provides an ergonomic design and an optional magnet or hook.
